First, let me say I'm one of those hourly photogs and not a chief.
Fact is, if you're scheduled for 8 hours, say 9am to 5pm, then you should be there 8 hours. Nobody should be leaving early in the first place. 10 minutes or so is no big deal but 30 minutes to an hour is too much. Heck, if you're done and have nothing to do, either ride around listening to your scanner for breaking news or sit and watch tv until your time is up. The only way I would leave early is if I already had OT for the week and I was allowed to leave early to cut some OT. Why should the station pay you for time you don't work??
